Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane is home to one of Ireland’s foremost collections of modern and contemporary art. This book, published in celebration of the opening of the newly extended Gallery, presents 120 of the most outstanding works in the collection.

Beautifully reproduced and accompanied by engaging and informative commentaries, this is a stunning presentation of Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane's most impressive collection of Irish and international art from the late nineteenth century to the present day.

Outstanding paintings and sculptures by such Impressionist and Barbizon artists as Camille Corot, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet and Edgar Degas are explored alongside those of their Irish counterparts Walter Osborne, Frank O'Meara and John Lavery.

Continuing into the twentieth century, major works by Maurice de Vlaminck, Henry Moore, Philip Guston and Ellsworth Kelly accompany such Irish masterpieces as the nationalist-inspired canvases of Sean Keating and Maurice McGonigal, and the Modernist works of Jack B. Yeats and Mainie Jellett.

The presence of works by important contemporary Irish artists including Elizabeth Magill, Seán Shanahan and Brian Maguire illustrates the continuing evolution of Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane's collection, and the recently donated prestigious paintings by Francis Bacon and Sean Scully are particular highlights of this unique and indispensable reference.
